We understand that you might hesitate to turn up the thermostat if you're worried about how to pay the bills. That's why we're committed to making a fuel payment of £225 each winter to those who need it.

Who is eligible?

Like all of CABA's services, the winter fuel payment is available to past and present ICAEW members, and their spouse, partner, widow, or widower. You're eligible to use CABA's services for your whole lifetime, even if you no longer pay ICAEW membership fees.

If you receive the income related benefit, Pension Credit, you’ll automatically qualify for the payment from CABA and we don’t need to assess your financial position. If you don’t receive Pension Credit, you may still qualify for a winter fuel payment from CABA, contact us to find out more.

How to apply if you receive Pension Credit

If you receive Pension Credit, you'll automatically qualify for the payment. All we'll need from you is:

  • A copy of your Pension Credit notice
  • A copy of your most recent bank statement

You can securely upload your documents and apply online below.
